The place is beautifully Venetian . It has a fresh daily menu which refreshingly is non-fish...the staff are knowledgable , friendly and efficient with the lady owner in control of the operation. The food is the best we’ve had in Venice. We last came here...More

Me and my wife just walked by the restaurant and were intrigued by the special cuisine offered. The food was delicious and we will definitely go back.

We dined here on recommendation from our hotel and because it is in the Lonely Planet but the food was a little disappointing and the staff a little cold. It is so small you need a reservation and perhaps because they're always full they've taken...More

Make a reservation. Bring cash (they don't take credit cards). Get to Campo San Barnaba in Dorsoduro, put the church behind your back - its the street on the left side of the campo, straight ahead. La Bitta is on the left a few doors...More

We went across to Dorsoduro to try and get a table at Pizzeria Al Profeta (as per TripAdvisor recommendations). Unfortunately this was full for the night, with no chance of a table. We then went down the street and stumbled upon La Bitta. We both...More

This is a stunning little restaurant with wonderful food.The owner recommended the wines (actually told us what to drink - and she was absolutely right!) the price is very good for the quality of the food and it's friendly and informal.

A busy place, very cosy and one you must book before you go to make sure you get in. The food was very tasty and their Panna Cotta is without doubt the best you can get. The staff were very friendly and service was good,...More

Feel welcome and looked after. The food is good, and for Venice decent value. The service is great and accomodating. Would definitely return.

We don't understand the rave reviews of this restaurant. It was hard to make a reservation, the staff was borderline surly, and the food was mediocre to poor. We did much better having a simple pizza in one of Dorsoduro's many pleasant piazzas.

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
